International Human Rights

Human rights may be inalienable rights but they depend on State actors to enforce through laws and policies. This guide helps you research those laws and policies.

Non-law Scholarly Articles

Your research may require some information from subjects outside of law just as an attorney might rquire expert witnesses to give authoritative explanations of some of the facts of a case. UC Libraries subscribes to 826 databases in all subjects taught here.  Most of them are full-text.  Human rights overlaps with an enormous variety of fields such as the environmental sciences, political sciences, anthropology, medicine, engineering.

The list below is a selection of some of the most useful databases from which students commonly need information: general, scholarship, the sciences, and news and commentary, particularly newspapers.  Each entry describes the contents of the database and includes a link to it.  If the list does not include what you want, you can search them all by title, subject or description or browse through an alphabetical list of them.  You can get help creating effective searches from our reference librarians or from the help that each database provides.
